The club’s beginner and badge program skaters will be skating to movie hits from Top Gun, Chicken Little, Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Kung Fu Panda, and Hanna Montana.

Higher level skaters from the junior and senior programs will skate to tunes from Footloose, Risky Business, and Austin Powers.

Duets on the ice will feature Stephanie Kearing and Miki DiMatteo, and Ashley Anderson and Bria Cole.

Solo skaters this year include Emily Sloan, Haley Clark, Allison Kearing, Abbie Lanning, and Ann Chiarenzelli.

Senior skaters Maya Holson and Jessica Sullivan are skating their last routines with the club at this year’s show.

Several guest skaters will take to the ice, including Shannon Flanagan, Nikola Wolfe, and a pair of Canadian ice dancing competitors just back from the Canadian Nationals, Anne-Chloe Bissonnette and Dylan Lockey.

Also invited to the Potsdam club’s performance are the synchronized skating teams from the area, the Shooting Stars, Ice Angles, Saint Sensations and Mystic Ice.
